#247 Cawthorne and Wright

Hair Salon Refurbishment

Two former garage workshops were knocked through into one leaving a design challenge to make the new space feel like one, for Cawthorne & Wright hair salon in Oakham, Leicestershire.


The newly created space was landlocked on 3 sides, thus seriously restricting the amount of daylight coming into the salon. A cleverly designed lighting scheme and the use of roof lanterns was needed to alleviate this problem.


The salon has a reception, waiting and retail area, 13 cutting stations, and 6 backwash basins. A new shopfront was created, and use of vibrant colours to contrast with the architectural minimalism.
